A Christians Scars

For I bear on my body the scars that show I belong to Jesus. Galatians 6:17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

The older we get, the more scars we have. There are different types of scars.

There is of course the physical ones, the mental ones and the spiritual ones.

The difference is that those that dwell in the world have no use for their scars.

I love to share the events in my life where Jehovah, Jesus and they Holy Spirit have touched me.                                                                         How can I not?                                                                                          They were life changing. Joseph a son of Jehovah

We that belong to Christ use these scars to encourage those in His family. When we see another brother or sister suffering we come along side them and share our scars with them and how Jesus used these scars to help mature us and how His gentle love healed these scars.

A Christians scars are used for encouragement for others in Jehovahs family. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ELOHIM YAKOL (God, the Most Able 2 Corinthians 9:8) for blessing me with challenging times so as to enable me to use these experiences to encourage, teach and comfort others when they go through life’s troubles. I praise You in the name of He who suffered the most for me Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

If They Did Not Repent.

 The Lord gave this message to Jonah son of Amittai:  “Get up and go to the great city of Nineveh. Announce my judgment against it because I have seen how wicked its people are.” Jonah 1: 1-2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Nineveh was not an unknown city to Jonah. They were arch enemies of both the Israelite’s and of Jehovah. The two countries deeply hated each other and were many times at war with each other. They treated each others captives very cruelly. I am sure some of Jonahs family and friends suffered at the Ninevite’s hands.

Now imagine Jehovah commanding a Jew who had family and friends suffer at the hands of the Nazi’s and Jehovah commanding him to go up and tell the Nazi’s if they do not repent they will be destroyed. That is what it was like for Jehovah to command Jonah to go to Nineveh and warn them of the coming destruction if they did not repent.

Okay, now let us make it more personal.

Imagine if Jehovah commanded you to go up and share Jesus with someone who has abused you or cheated you or made you suffer horribly in any other manner, and inform them if they did not repent of their ways they would be condemned to Hell for eternity.

Would you do it?

Although sometimes obeying Jehovahs commands may be like swallowing a turd sideways we, as His children are to be obedient unto Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Many times Jehovah will command us to do things which are repugnant to us but has eternal consequences for those He is sending us to.

No where do we see the Ninevite’s and Israelite’s becoming best buddies or and other change in the disposition between the two enemies. I believe there will be little change in the disposition between the two belligerents of today either .

Prayer: Please Jesus Melech Olam (Psalms 10:16 The LORD King Forever ) bless this humble servant of Your to always be obedient unto His masters calling no matter how unpleasant it is. I sincerely request this in Your majestic name. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah

Believe It or Not There Are

 If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. 1 John 1:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Believe it or not there are folks that live as if they believe they are sinless.

Whenever the do something wrong they quickly make up excuses for why A: that it not what really happened,

B: it was not their fault or

C: it is okay because everyone else is doing it.

Trying to convince them of their wrong doing is exhaustive.

I have found the best last response to these lies is :

“You may lie to me and if you repeat the lie enough, even convince yourself, but you cannot con Jesus.” Joseph a son of Jehovah

and then walk away.

It shocks even the so called “unbelievers”.

Many times we commit sins without even knowing it. That is why we need to be sensitive to the Holy Spirits guidance and quickly repent of the sin before its roots grow too deep. Then, it is a real battle to conquer them. With the help of the Holy Spirit this can be accomplished.

Pull out your sins when they first occur to prevent them from taking root unless you want a real battle on your hands. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The beautiful thing is though, that when we repent ( which means we are to admit what we did, admit it was wrong, ask for forgiveness, stop committing the sin and make restitution for the offence committed- so if we sold something from someone we are to give it back), Jehovah is quick to forgive us.

But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. 1 John 1:9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Please Jehovah Mekaddishkem (Exodus 31:13 The LORD that Sanctifies Me) bless me with the Holy Spirits help to convict me when I grieve You and the help me repent so as to remain a child of Your with whom You are well pleased. I sincerely request this in the name of He whose blood brought me redemption Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I am Not Afraid.

 I am not afraid, for the Holy Spirit is with me. I am not discouraged, for Jehovah is my God. Jesus strengthens me and helps me. He holds me up with His victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Please my Beloved Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8The LORD Mighty In Battle) whenever hard times come always help me to remember that You have promised that You would never leave me nor desert me and that You are always true to Your word. Jesus has said, I will never fail you. I will never abandon you. ”Hebrews 13:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I know that when satan is attacking his hardest it is to prevent me from accomplishing important tasks You have prepared for me to do to bring honour to You and to bring the little lost sheep to You.

Keep awake! Watch at all times. The devil is working against me. He is walking around like a hungry lion with his mouth open. He is looking for someone to eat 1Peter 5:6-8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

When all seems lost, please remind me that You are right there beside me, walking me to glorious victory in Your beautiful name. You have promised that the battle is not mine but Yours to win. I know many battles will not be won instantly but take time.

The Lord my God is with me, a Powerful One Who wins the battle. He has much joy over me. With His love He gives me new life. He has joy over me with loud singing. Zephaniah 3:17 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Please enlarge my faith (trust) in You to bring it to a magnificent completion. Remembering the past victories cause me to sing songs of gratitude and joy for the victory You are bringing me in this battle.

I pray this in the name of my most glorious King of Kings, Jesus Christ. Amen

Today and Every Day.

Oh my Beloved El Emunah (Deuteronomy 7:9 The Faithful GOD ), I need You in my life today and every day.

Please bless me with Your gentle healing touch when others inflict me with cruel words or actions today.

Please bless me to be forgiving as You are forgiving unto me.

Please bless me with Your forgiveness when I am cruel in my words and actions today and guide me to repent to those I have offended either intentionally or unintentionally.

Please constantly remind me to depend upon Your guidance instead of foolishly depending upon my own or others flawed intelligence.

Thank you for Your healing balm upon my wounded heart as You are the best doctor there is.

Thank you that there is always a purpose in the wounds and aches and pains that come my way. They are for teaching me, maturing me or correcting me when I am going astray. You allow these because You love me too much to leave me as I am and desire for me to be the child of Yours You know I can be. It is because of these my Lord that my love for You grows ever deeper every day and we grow ever closer every day.

Thank you for that, the best blessing You can give me above all other blessings.

I humbly say this prayer in the name of my best friend Jesus Christ. Amen

What Will Happen To

 The godly can look forward to a reward, while the wicked can expect only judgment. Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything. The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. If you search for good, you will find favor; but if you search for evil, it will find you! Trust in your money and down you go! But the godly flourish like leaves in spring. Those who bring trouble on their families inherit the wind. The fool will be a servant to the wise. The seeds of good deeds become a tree of life; a wise person wins friends. If the righteous are rewarded here on earth, what will happen to wicked sinners? Proverbs 11:23-31 Holy Bible New Living Translation

One day while volunteering with a Christian organization delivering furniture to the needy we delivered furniture to welfare bums. They were so lazy they refused to even carry the free blankets used to keep them warm. They were ungrateful.

But, you know what else they were?

Very sad and ashamed .

It was because they knew their lifestyle was wrong not because of us.

We were respectful and friendly with them.

Listening to them talk amongst themselves we hear them constantly brag about themselves while drinking and smoking cigarettes. This is vanity and it comes from a selfish heart. But the sad thing is that:

When you surround yourself with yourself you end up with nobody but yourself. That is a very lonely place to be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

They were living a destructive lifestyle and it was only destroying themselves.

For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body. 2 Corinthians 5:10 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Later we did deliver furniture to low income folks who were very grateful so it more than evened out for being a rewarding day knowing that we helped the truly needy. And, because we are Christians and those we helped were not, we gave glory to Jesus and by His grace used this as a conutit to guide them to Him.

And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God. Hebrews 13:16 Holy Bible New Living Translation

There is a difference between those in need and those who are too lazy to support themselves. Supporting the later is a waste of the resources Jehovah has given you to help those who are truly in need. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Elohim Ozer Li (Psalms 54:4 GOD My Helper ) bless me with helping me discern the difference between those that need help and those that are parasites upon society. The one my heart dance with joy for the opportunity to help. The other is a waste of time, energy and resources. I humbly request this in the name of He who only gave salvation to those who were willing to become His servants and work for His kingdoms interest Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The Wise Man Waits

For The Lord is slow to get angry, but his power is great, and he never lets the guilty go unpunished. Nahum 1:3 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

We have the neighbours from Hell living beside us. Last year they ripped up a part of our garden then planted their own in it claiming it was no theirs. I think they are jealous because our garden is so beautiful and everyone comments on it They threw rubbish in our back yard. When I would bring friends to look at our garden in the back yard, they would yell and scream at us because (according to them ) we did not have the right to do that. If we did that our friends would see their marijuana and want to steal it (which they had no interest in). We could not trim our roses sharon bushes because then people would see their marijuana and want to steal it.

I prayed to the Lord for deliverance from these wicked creatures and for four months He told me to be brave and the battle was His.

This spring He directed me to have our land surveyed and install a camera so that if they came on our land this year they would be spending their summer behind bars for trespassing, destruction of private property, theft of private property and public nuisance .

They were told to clean up their mess our they would be sued (which they did).

We had to have our septic system cleaned and wanted to put in a new one (which we we informed was not necessary, the line just needed cleaned out). Then we were informed the neighbour put in a new one last year without a permit which would cost him around fifty thousand dollars if the county found out. They know we know about it.

I carry a camera with me so that if they yell and scream at me this year it will be filmed, given to a lawyer and they will be spending the summer in a psychiatric ward. So now they HAVE to behave themselves or else there will be severe consequences.

It is driving them nuts that they HAVE to behave themselves but it sure is a lot more peaceful on this side of the fence.

Each time the Lord reminded me of how He works bring peace to a destructive situation for us while punishing the war mongers.

What gets me is how they can go to church and she teaching children at Sunday School.

The wise man waits for the Lord for it is His fight that will lead to victory. All other paths lead to disaster. Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohe Yeshuathi (Psalms 88:1 LORD GOD of My Salvation ) for blessing me with Your awesome salvation from wicked beings that steal our land and peace. Thank you for providing the resources to to force the wicked to behave themselves. Thank you that this has brought so much joy to my life. I exalt You in the name of He who will bring peace unto all the world Jesus Christ Shalom (Judges 6:24 The LORD our Peace . Amen

May Christ bless you with love, joy and peace today and every day.Joseph a son of Jehovah

A Prayer for Trust

And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. 2 Corinthians 9:8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Oh my caring God please bless me with ample patience to deal with an obstinate one in my care.

Please bless me with abundant wisdom to know how to provide the proper care while not allowing for manipulation, conniving nor deceiving to enslave me. To know when it is best to walk away from the tormentor to maintain my sanity.

Please bless me with a sanctuary away from the abusive one so we can commune together in peace.

Please bless me with plentiful strength to endure the constant nit picking and complaining that is just being used to get attention.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

Smack Them Down Hard

Please rescue me Jehovah Maginnenu (Psalms 89:18 The LORD Our Defence) from worrying over the trouble makers in my life and the dishonest ones that are making my life miserable.

I know You are my loving, caring Father who protects His children from those with wicked intentions.

I know that even though it seems as if they are getting away with it and indeed, even prospering from it, Your righteous hand shall smack them down hard with Your Divine justice.

The wicked cannot scam You, plea bargain with You or con You. I know that Your justice will be done in Your way, in Your time ( but can You hurry it up a bit please).

Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, I will take revenge; I will pay them back,” says the Lord. Romans 12:19 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

the devious reward

Thank you for Your true justice in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

No Matter the Enemy.

The Lord your God is with you, a Powerful One Who wins the battle. He will have much joy over you. With His love He will give you new life. He will have joy over you with loud singing. Zephaniah 3:17 The Holy Bible The New Life Version

CHRIST SHOWS HIS STRENGTH

No matter the enemy you are doing battle with, the unconquerable Trio is right there in the thick of it with you.

They are of course: Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Do not think this is a one battle event.

There are addiction battles, health battles, bad disposition battle and relationship battle. These occur over the course of a lifetime.

Some battles are short, some last for decades (I can think of one in my life that took over forty years before our Loves finally annihilated it ).

Some battles will never be won until we reach Heavens Gate.

Some battles we must be submissive to our Holy Kings to fight along side of them for victory to be won.

Some battles we must step back and surrender them to the Heavenly Trio to destroy.

Through them all Jehovah the Refiner is burning off the filth in us and making us the pure children of love He intended for us to be. After each burning off of the dross (eliminating the filth in us) Jehovah, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the angels in Heaven  dance for joy at seeing us become more refined than the finest gold.

We are constantly being remoulded into the beautiful creation Jehovah intends for us to be. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8 The LORD Mighty In Battle) for blessing me with Your victorious battle skills that You have taught me to use to win battles, for sharing You awesome battle strategies with me so that we win the battle together and for blessing me with the skills, knowledge and You magnificent encouragement to egg me on to victory. I bless You in the name of He who won the greatest battle of all, that over death, Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah
